want to make a splash and to be competitive during your trade show appearance
but trade shows are not the Wild West. There are some rules that one must
follow if one wishes to make the right impression on potential
clients/connections. The following are commonsense booth etiquette tips that we
hope will help you make each and every tradeshow appearance a success.
Set up your booth on time: Imagine the impression you will make on other attendees and potential leads by not setting up your booth on time. It will not be a good one. Leads will get the impression that your business is equally chaotic and disorganized. Start setting up things long before the venue opens its doors.
Don’t have a messy booth: A well organized, attractive booth is more functional and makes a positive impact on future clients. Our double deck displays are attractive and attention getting and will help you make that vital first impression on customers.
Avoid eating and drinking in your booth: Another thing that will give an equally bad impression on potential customers is eating in your booth. This gives clients the idea that you are too busy for them and that you take their presence lightly.
Be considerate of other vendors: Be considerate and remember that there are other vendors present at whatever show you attend. Keep your light and sound presentation at respectable levels and do not interfere with another vendor’s presentation to attendees.
Learn the prospect’s name: Let the potential customer know that you he/she is the object of your attention buy learning and using his/her name. You could lose a potential sale if he/she believes that you feel they are not important.
Stay out of other companies’ booths: This is rude, inconsiderate and as a practical matter sets up the opportunity for other vendors to do the same thing to you. Stick to your own display and your own customers.
Listen more and talk less: Finally, don’t overwhelm your prospects with a bunch of sales talk. Allow them to say what they want to say and actively listen.
In short, key contacts are often made at trade shows. They present an open microphone for your company to make its best case for itself. You should know how to turn off and on that mike. You can also help make that first impression of your company positive one by using atrade show exhibit rental Los Angeles from Pop Exhibits, Inc.
This post was originally written prior to the onset of Covid but as trade shows are beginning to pick up speed again it seems like a good time to republish it. As this is written, the Mining Expo International 2021 is set to begin in Las Vegas and we have (3) Double Deck Exhibits in the show. It’s safe to say that in spite of it all the tide is turning.
So, obviously, we provide double deck exhibit rentals for shows in Las Vegas. Our Double Deck Exhibit rental program handles logistics, install & dismantle and help with pre-show project management. Our site has published pricing on a number of double deck designs. View our selection of pre-designed double deck kits, or give us a call to discuss your needs.

Do you know that up until 2012 there were very few exhibit houses offering 2-Story Exhibits for sale and even fewer offering them as rentals. Much has changed and much has been written about Double Deck pros and cons over the last few years but as we get ready to enter 2019 let’s take a moment to review.
Been there done that.
Some of our clients rented a Double Deck and then decided to go back to renting a single level exhibit. One of the reasons for this has to do with weight, for the more an exhibit weighs the heavier the financial burden when it comes to the show imposed expense called Drayage. Multi-Story booth designs have to be structurally engineered so as to…. basically, be safe. This equates to more weight. Another reason might have to do with with space; if you’re able to secure a larger booth space you can spread out and negate the need for extra square footage upstairs. Marketing goals and the need for a different kind of presentation can play a role. Perhaps a large monitor and easily accessible seating are more important that a private conference area.
Double Deck Exhibit Rentals continue to be popular, however, due to a number of positives. There’s the exclusive feeling you get when you are sitting upstairs and sharing that may help in building one on one relationships. It can be relatively open or completely private. The surrounding walls provide tons of branding space as well as visibility from around the hall. The bottom line is that they are impressive, solid, visible and strong. If this is how you like to think of your company perhaps it’s time to move up.
Note: P.O.P. Exhibits Inc. has been offering decks since 2007.
